wolf tattoo on leg by ivana tattoo art Pop Color Tattoos by Ivana Belakova The self-taught Slovakian artist initially started working in black and grey, but has since expanded her palette. That transition, led to her developing a style that combines the vibrant, chaotic nature of graffiti with fine art aesthetics—visuals that are harmonious, yet spontaneous at the same time. #ink #tattoo #tattoos #art
Boy, do I love Ryan Mason (out of scapegoat tattoo in Portland)! Just look at this sick tatty zap. Great use of subtle color transitions, really fun line-weight variation and texture, cool little details and stellar composition. Not to mention sweet subject matter.
sashkash: For the longest time I wanted to do a study of how Renard transforms, and finally put this together. The tattoos are basically a collection of animal spirits so I’ve always imagined him just being able to grab onto one and pull it over like a skin. (Done with ink and a mix of photoshop)
Really great article on tattoos as art, also lots of good references in here for further places to do research... http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/10/arts/artsspecial/Tracing-the-transformation-of-tattoos-.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0
